IRON MAIDEN Takes Off: Sneak Peek At Soon-To-Be-Released Documentary - Mar. 14, 2009

Mark Levine of Huffington Post has written an in-depth look at "Iron Maiden: Flight 666", the forthcoming feature-length documentary film which follows the IRON MAIDEN bandmembers on the first leg of their "Somewhere Back In Time World Tour" in February and March of 2008 as they experienced the most ambitious and adventurous trek in rock history. An excerpt from the article follows below.


"You've never experienced 'The Trooper' or 'Run To The Hills' until you've heard IRON MAIDEN perform them in front of 15,000 screaming Muslim metalheads in Dubai. Or so I thought as I stood in the middle of an ecstatic crowd in the sands of the Dubai Desert Rock Festival a few miles outside of the city center in the middle of a crowd of fans who knew every word to every song the band played. So powerful was the sense of community and shared identity the band's music brought to the audience on a hot March evening in 2007 that many audience members were crying.


"Standing only a few hundred miles from Iraq, in a region that has experienced more than its share of colonialism, oppression, and meaningless violence, it seemed natural that the complex and ambivalent visions of war, death and imperialism that characterizes some of MAIDEN's most famous songs would be more resonant in the Middle East than almost any other place on earth.


"Or so I thought.


"Last Thursday night I learned how myopic my vision of IRON MAIDEN's impact has been. I was lucky enough to be invited to attend a screening of the soon-to-be released documentary, 'Flight 666', produced by the team of Scott McFayden and Sam Dunn, who've seemingly singlehandedly brought the power of metal to the world's attention with their films 'Metal: A Headbanger's Journey' and 'Global Metal'.


"'Flight 666' is not merely a concert film, although there is more than enough music to keep even the most ardent MAIDEN fan head banging throughout its two hours.

    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me. 
    • not worked up. I couldn't give a stuff about VH the band or EVH. Was never really a fan tbh outside of a handful of songs. But MM is a twat. Period.
